Everyone is welcome. We are an informal group which formed after Dr. Guy McPherson's last appearance in Portland. Dr. McPherson was the first scientist to state without reservation or obfuscation that Earth's climate is changing too rapidly for humans to stop its momentum, and, thus, we are headed for extinction soon. This could occur within 10 years and will probably involve starvation due to crop failure. We talk together about our emotions while we are living with this devastating information, Any topics related to this are welcome. We discuss new climate information and methods to perhaps adapt to these changes. We also explore how to alleviate suffering and help others. Contact: cascadialifeboat@yahoo.com
